Durban 2012: Do I need a yellow fever vaccination?
Yellow fever is an infectious disease caused by a virus carried by the AÃ«des aegypti mosquito. South Africa does not have yellow fever but to avoid its introduction international health regulations require all travellers arriving from a yellow fever risk country to show proof that they have been vaccinated. This includes anyone whose flight included a stopover in a yellow fever risk country, even if they did not get off the plane. If you are travelling from or have passed through a yellow fever risk country in the six days before your arrival in South Africa, you must have a valid Yellow Fever Certificate.

Over the past year, international and national media have been full of stories about protest movements and tumultuous social upheaval from Tunisia to California.
